Speed Date with queer, Danish pop star Asbjørn

The musician says he’s looking forward to touring his new album “Boyology”

Asbjørn’s third album Boyology is filled with upbeat rhythms and accompanied by a series of interconnected music videos that explore what it’s like to come of age as a young queer. “Basically, Boyology is, you know, an attempt to kind of create the rules myself and define what I think being a boy or being a man is to me,” explains singer and producer Asbjørn. He also talks to Xtra about his process of writing the queer anthem “Be Human,” a song that explores childhood gender fluidity and challenging masculine norms.

Lito Howse (they/them) is a queer and trans/non-binary identified videographer, editor and producer based in Toronto. They previously worked for the CBC where they wrote TV stories, edited and control room produced for News Network. They also produced videos for CBC Radio and wrote web articles for shows like The Current and As It Happens, among other roles. They speak English.
